    Well I'm having another NSD today, although I keep getting tempted and putting things in online baskets
    But my new mantra is 'make use of, mend, or chuck the b@gger out I mean minimise!'
    Following the search for the wedding certificate I shredded more old papers and filled a large bin bag, I've gone through the old magazines I've been keeping for the interesting articles and have taken out the half a dozen pages that I really want to keep. Recycling bin is full and have now nearly filled my neighbours too.
    Friend came around to help me sort out a few of my excess clothes for listing on the bay, or wherever, I passed on 3 things to her.
    The neighbour came for coffee so I gave her the 2 bikini tops she keeps borrowing from me, and a china bowl.
    The Grumpy old one, who is grumpier than usual as his back 'has gone off' he's in pain and can't work, bless him, has been given leave of absence to go to the pub and moan to his friends has been dispatched with 3 old towels for a friend who will use them for her dog.
    Friends daughter is buying her first house so I'm filling a washing up bowl and bucket with 'useful' things for her, and have included a couple of those airwick candles and the reeds we got for next to nowt I don't know how long ago.
    DS and family are visiting tomorrow for a few days so I'll see what I can 'pass on' to them.
    Only another few thousand things to go...............

    Cherish those you have in your life because you never know when they won't be there anymore.

    No matter how you feel, get up, dress up & never give up.

    I am a bit concerned about the BBC putting Tom Daley story about a baby on their front page, because as far as I can see there is no confirmation it is legal or not.
    You can have surrogates in the UK and pay "reasonable" expenses encurred. Also the "mother", even with a contract, can still say she wants to keep the child.
    If it had been an announcement of the child's birth and adoption, it would entirely be fine, as long as confirmed, but without checking the facts, aren't the BBC putting them in a position of accepting something that seems to have been on "social" media. The exact thing that news agencies have been advising people not to do.

    Anyway I have a bee in my bonnet about articial insemination/surrogacy when there are orphans and children out there without families, who only have a life of social care and then abandonment by teh state when they come of age. Not a good start in life for a innocent child.

    Serious moment now finished for this month

    Bee comes from the fact I am one of the lucky ones, adopted by my mum and dad at four months old and loved and cared for as much, and probably more than, other children born to their parents.

Make sure you wave your registered card at them when paying and get them to scan it so you get the 500 points on 24th. You don't need a crad for the BOGOF anyway, just for the 500 points.

    Just bought from Iceland, very large, 3 wick, different Christmas flavoured candles in silver or red glass pots......10p. Also mandarin & spice melting wax kit with ceramic pot. also 10p. Even if the scent doesn't last, for 10p the candle is worth it

    Oola is free at T with COS but only for today on mine and I am having a day in, so no chance.

    Also the Oppo website has a 1 off coupon valid at S and W, there's 1.50 back at COS, I've no idea how much they are.
